Anguage plays a great role in determining one's own identity and origin. Through language, people are able to communicate information to one another. One can also learn to identify skills needed to be honed and cultivated by the use of a language. The researchers intended to respond to the following: assess and compare Selected Cultural Words with variations in pronunciation of the Biga, Tongrayan, and Limos groups according to the types of stress; recognize different variations of pronunciation with other languages; and put into practice the different variations of their language as part of their identity and culture. The Biga Groups, Tongrayan, and Limos have been selected by the researchers to study and used descriptive-analytical or visual techniques that are subject to structural and sociolinguistic design. Based on the result of the study, it is evident that the three groups of Biga, Tongrayan, and Limos are rich in expressions or terms. Different tone and emphasis have not been a barrier in order for the three groups to understand one another. It was also proven that the variation of their language is rapidly evolving. However, the unique pronunciation of each group is being preserved. There are also the same words which they use in their culture which were pronounced and stressed differently among the three groups. These words also carry different meanings that distinguish their identity or group.
